Why are buybacks favored over dividends? If the economy slows or falls into recession, the bank might be forced to cut its dividend to preserve cash. The result would undoubtedly lead to a sell-off in the stock. However, if the bank decided to buy back fewer shares, achieving the same preservation of capital as a dividend cut, the stock price would likely take less of a hit. Committing to dividend payouts with steady increases will certainly drive a company's stock higher, but the dividend strategy can be a double-edged sword for a company. In the event of a recession, share buybacks can be decreased more easily than dividends, with a far less negative impact on the stock price.

However, the danger of Mr Corbyn being allowed in through the back door because of the Brexit Party splitting the vote was highlighted in new calculations on the cost of his plans to renationalise the energy market and national grid.

According to research, the proposal which has only happened in bankrupt Venezuela, would cost £45 billion, adding £2,500 in debt for every household in Britain.

In 2015, Lloyds returned £2bn to shareholders through dividend payments. By 2018, this figure had doubled to about £4bn, made up of £2.3bn in dividends and £1.75bn of share buybacks.

What does this mean for shareholders? For the second year running, chief executive António Horta-Osório has opted to use some of the group’s surplus cash to reduce its share count.

For shareholders, the benefit should be that earnings per share rise more quickly, because profits are split among fewer shares. Last year’s £1bn buyback repurchased 1.6bn shares. I estimate that this year’s £1.75bn buyback could involve about 2.65bn shares.

Given that the bank has about 71.2bn shares at the time of writing, this year’s buyback alone should reduce the total share count by about 3.7%. However, I think the real reduction will probably be a little lower than this.

Lloyds hiked the dividend by 5 per cent to 3.21p per share and proposed a share buyback of up to £1.75bn, which represents a total return of up to £4bn to investors.

At the end of the day, if it came to it, I think it would be politically unrealistic for a Labour government not to pay UK shareholders the same price for their shares as they were paying overseas investors. This is why I’d still be happy to buy National Grid shares today.

How Well Does Shingrix Work?
Two doses of Shingrix provides strong protection against shingles and postherpetic neuralgia (PHN), the most common complication of shingles.

In adults 50 to 69 years old who got two doses, Shingrix was 97% effective in preventing shingles; among adults 70 years and older, Shingrix was 91% effective.
In adults 50 to 69 years old who got two doses, Shingrix was 91% effective in preventing PHN; among adults 70 years and older, Shingrix was 89% effective.

Shingrix protection remained high (more than 85%) in people 70 years and older throughout the four years following vaccination. Since your risk of shingles and PHN increases as you get older, it is important to have strong protection against shingles in your older years.

Lloyds got a further boost in February after posting a 24% rise in full-year after-tax profits to £4.4bn, with revenue up 2% to £17.8bn. Alongside improving margins, that was enough to encourage Roland Head to say that Lloyds is probably the safest buy in British banking right now.

This £47bn giant remains incredibly cheap, trading at just eight times forward earnings, with a forecast yield of 5.2%, covered 2.2 times by earnings. Lloyds still looks a long-term buy-and-hold to me, despite Brexit clouds.
so at this price of around 61p it must be a buy even though i paid £ .0004 p over my plan to buy at 61
income long term , we could see 80p before the end of the year
